Lag on heavy games like colin mcrae rally, it starts smootly, but after 5 minutes of gameplay when the phone heats up it starts to shutter, lag, frame drop and frame skip.
Lags on daily usage too.
On V10H.

QHD has nothing to do with the issues at all. Its quite clear LG released this phone in almost a panic about heat and battery life, with so many unnecessary measures taken. I disabled quite a lot of them and its smooth and the battery lasts longer than any phone ive had before, even my G2. I wonder if half the screens issues are due to LG undervolting it. Most mods for other devices undervolt the screen to save power, I want to try the opposite.

Precisely everything improves with software updates. By NO means is the 801 a weak processor. It can smoothly operate my phone with a down clocked GPU to 200mhz

Cogratualations to LG on their "adaptive frame rate" marketing nonsense as its obviously worked.

I think you just went full retard if you honestly believe the 801 is underpowerd for QHD.

Bro the the Nexus 10 operates smoothly with a cpu/gpu half as weak as the 801 and with the same resolution. Lol the ignorance.

You are correct with Nexus 10. I just remembered it and yes it has an Exynos dual-core. So all the talk that 801 is not powerful for QHD, is in fact negative advertisement for G3. Indeed LG needed 3-4 firmwares to make the phone usable and in line with S5, Z2, One. Even though the screen when on, eat battery more than the rest of the phones. But only for screen/size advantage, I'll keep G3 till something alike will be launched. After G3, I can't accept something bigger, even with the same screen size. Even Note 4, and I was fan of Note series, is not something that I want, when I know Snapdragon 810 with 64-bit will come.

This is a hardware issue without a doubt. Again, run the frame rate app in the background on a 1080 801 then the QHD 805 and look at the low frame rates on the G3. Also go and read Anandtechs comments about needing an 805 with QHD to get 801 performance on 1080.Look at Erica Griffins video where she states the 805 G3 is much smoother than the 801 G3 and advises against buying the 801 G3(both the same LG software),finally go and read the comments on the Cat 6 thread where they say their 805 G3s are running smoothly with no lag and as fast as an M8. The 801 is capable of 2k,just not very smoothly.

Oppo phones never run that well, LG phones always launch with lag.

The cat 6 runs better with a faster processor? You dont say!! Of course it does, it still doesn't mean the software isnt the problem. Im shocked that Anand will say something as noobish as that, I would expect them to know better that 2D UI elements are 3D are totally different things. Even a 2 or 3 year old GPU will handle QHD in 2D perfectly fine, as long as the software is set up properly.

As has been stated more than once, many of us have no lag because we have made a few changes to our phones, this proves the issue is with the software or at the least with the way LG manages throttling.

Games are a separate issue and yes I can see that it might struggle with some games, but I don't play games, so I don't care.

I have a G2 and a G3, the G3 wins most races. It opens apps a little quicker, it returns to the home screen instantly. Youtube is a well know slow opener, its virtually instant on the G3, the G2 is a fraction behind. My work friends M8 is about the same.

Its sad really that companies blame the hardware when its actually their software. Even Google are lazy. The Nexus 10 has less transparency than the other Nexus' because they say the GPU is 'too slow'. Explain then why devs have enabled it and its perfectly OK..

In my experience I had enormous lag with xposed running. As soon as I got rid of xposed my G3 was flying again.

Not sure why it was like that but definitely noticed the difference. My lock screen took forever to open or close sometimes and the Facebook app was extraordinarily laggy. Once I got rid of xposed it was an amazingly smooth experience.

It's the **** stock launcher. Root and disable it and your performance doubles. I'm not even kidding. Using Nova instead, the whole system feels twice as fast. Stock launcher must be doing some serious **** in the background, eating up cpu cycles and introducing all that disgusting lag.

The thing with Iphone is the way it's set up, Android has more things working in the background eating up ram/etc, that's why optimization is so important. Put an 801 chip into the Iphone, which has MUCH less things running in the background by default, and I guarantee you that the phone will run much faster than with the A7 chip.

Also, rogue apps that are not optimized correctly can also cause serious lag. I recently had the HTC One M8, which ran beautifully, until I downloaded a rogue app that was eating up ram when not in use, and my phone was lagging like crazy.

So it's not really fair to compare android with ios's speed, because all Iphone devices work the same way, and use the same chip. While on Android, there are many factors and apps that can interfere with the OS. Any true Android fan should know how these things work..you can customize the phone to your liking, but you also have to deal with rogue apps and ram issues sometimes.


Hi..... What is the procedure to enable 60 fps on G3. I recieved my phone 2 days back and am actually new to these things.

Thanks......

Running like a dream here.

Stock Rom, Rooted, Nova Launcher and NO Xposed.

I had so many performance problems on my last phone when using xposed, learnt to stay away from it despite its benefits.

3845#*model number# EG I have 885 version so for me ite 3845#*855#

That takes you to secret setting.
look for Dynamic LCD refresh ON/off
then press fixed FPS test and set to 60fps

Hope this helps
